Considers the measures needed to enable the assimilation of the company’s Way into the local subsidiary/overseas branch upon expanding business globally
While it is not easy to assimilate the company’s Way into the organization in Japan, it is even more difficult to do so overseas. In order to get your overseas business on the right track, you must increase the number of employees; neglecting the Way during this process would likely to give rise to serious issues in the short-run.This program enables you to transcend cross-cultural differences and to create a policy which assimilates your company’s Way into the local subsidiary/overseas branch, from the top to the bottom.
By being specific about the company’s starting-point and policy, the program creates a mechanism that guides the conduct of the employees
Working out the Way top-down, however, is not the whole story. In order to create a mechanism that facilitates coherent behavior across the local staff, you must consider their independence, and let them take an active part in the process by expressing the company’s Way with their own words. In order to grasp the current situation concerning the company’s Way, this program analyzes questionnaires and interviews which were distributed and conducted in advance with HQ managers, overseas managers and local staff. Using this evaluation as a starting point, we create a mechanism to revise and maintain the company’s Way.
Drawing from rich experience in cross-cultural environment, this program underlines the key points necessary to the assimilation of the company’s Way overseas
Relaying your company’s Way to people from different cultural backgrounds is more difficult than it seems.

A key to gain competitive advantage among businesses is the ability to assimilate your company’s Way not only in Japan but also in your overseas operations. However, it takes a considerable skill to be able to communicate Way across cultures in a simple, easy-to-understand manner, which would enable the overseas employees to act in according to it. This program thoroughly considers the know-how necessary to show exactly how to achieve a joint ownership of the company’s Way. By using self-reflection, the participants gain a clear image of what needs to be done, enabling them to successfully proceed with the assimilation of the company’s Way into the overseas subsidiary.
